Antonina (European Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Antonina is a poignant account of a young Russian woman whose life is shaped by the cruel neglect of her stepparents, the financial ruin of her father and later her husband, and - the centerpiece of the novel - her failed love affair with a sensitive but weak young man. This work is a previously untranslated section of a four-volume novel, The Niece, published in Russia in 1851. Patterned after the successful contemporary novels of the Bronte sisters - in fact, Tur names one character after the town of Millcote in Jane Eyre - Antonina was praised by another great nineteenth-century writer, Ivan Turgenev. Jehanne Gheith addresses the novel's continuing appeal in her illuminating introduction.

Synopsis:

Patterned on the novels of the Brontë sisters, Antonina is a poignant account of a young Russian whose life is shaped by the cruel neglect of her stepparents, the financial ruin of her father and husband, and--the centerpiece of the novel--her failed love affair with a sensitive but weak young man.

About the Author

The author of numerous  prose pieces and a series of popular children's books, Eveniya Tur (the pseudonym of Elizaveta Sailhas de Tournemire, 1815-92) is considered by many to be the foremost Russian woman writer of her era.  Michael R. Katz, chair of the Department of Slavic Languages at the University of Texas at Austin, is the translator of Polinka Saks and The Story of Aleksei Dmitrich by Alexander Druzhinin and Prologue by Nikolai Chernyshevsky, both published by Northwestern University Press.  Jehanne Gheith is assistant professor in the Department of Slavic Languages at Duke University; she also teaches in the Women's Studies Program.
